congress whacks the power under the commerce power or necessary and proper power to impose a mandate to purchase insurance. of course it says the statute was valid under the taxing power but only did that by read characterizing the statute as not a mandate to purchase insurance but as a tax on the status of not having insurance so construed they upheld it as a valid exercise of taxing power. it is worth recognizing that that is a different statute from the statute congress passed and it has different practical effects. most law-abiding citizens if told there is a constitutionally valid mandate to purchase insurance will purchase insurance. i think most people if told that they have to pay a tax if they don't purchase insurance will want to know how much is the tax and how much does the insurance cost and they will make a rational decision whether to purchase health insurance and some people will purchase insurance and some people will choose to pay the tax. the practical consequence i believe is that the number of individuals who will remain uninsured will be higher under a regime th
on the commerce clause. everyone of the justices at some level will see the commerce power is fairly broad. i also think all nine justices recognize there have to be limits on the commerce power, otherwise the whole point of enumerating the various powers of congress was entirely beside the point. they could instead the commerce power, were down. now i think some of the justices may question what role there is for the judiciary to enforce the commerce power letters. what happened in this case is that five justices did adopt what is bad at least the dominant view since the lopez decision, which is the core can simply knock it out of enforcing limits on federalism on the power of the federal government to adhere to iowa quote justice kennedy from his lopez concurrence. as he said then, the federal balance is too essential a part of archons additional structure in place to vital ebola in securing freedom for us to admit an inability to intervene when one or the other level of government has tipped the scales too far. i think he also recognize this is not an area where there are strong occasional ince

by the energy and commerce committee here in the house. but support for this agenda also requires us to pull the plug on existing programs that simply aren't working. and the department of energy's title 17 loan guarantee program is simply not advancing the ball on an all-of-the-above energy goal. the no more solyndras act, this bill phases out this costly, ineffective and frankly very mismanaged program. the investigation of solyndra uncovered a story worse than anyone could have imagined. it is amazing to me that the administration gave a half billion dollar loan guarantee to a company that its own experts predicted would fail. a company so dysfunctional that it burned through this giant handout and went bankrupt in two years. even worse, when it became clear to the administration that solyndra was in trouble, it chose to double down on the risky bet, gambling even more taxpayer dollars with a desperate loan restructuring instead of trying to cut its losses and move on. solyndra is the most visible but far from the only example of title 17 failures. in fact, it is hard to point to a single
